Special thanks to J58/Payback for his original list. I revised it slightly, and also added in newer effects.

Peace sign is missing, Burning, Scorching and Sunbeams are B tier.

Added peace sign, can't believe I forgot one. Scorching and Burning are not B tier. But, Sunbeams, Phantasm Jr, and Ghastly Ghosts Jr. I could see moving down.

Dude nebula is soooooooooo S tier, c'mon just move it up already.

I agree if it's on a Space Mann or Corona Astralis, but most of the time I would say it's A

Burning+Scorching are absolutely not on par with Nebula/Dark Doorway/Galactic Gateway/Eldritch Opening lol
Eerie Orbiting Fire should be right down with regular Orbiting Fire

This smells to me like a bit opinion is being thrown into the mix of an objective tier list. Nebula translators (an ugly all class) are close to 200 keys despite there being more than 200 of them floating around. 

I do think it would help to have your tiers a bit more split up

One is a halloween effect and considerably better in almost every scenario, not sure what you are smoking.

It's not really an opinion, you just can't call the effect S tier when 60% of the hats with this effect are 200 keys or less.

I actually agree with you on this, but all I would do is cut off B tier at Brain Drain and drop down everything else a tier, and make an F- tier
